Researchers from the OIST failed to find a correlation between the patience of man and serotonin levels in his body. The conclusion was made by studying the behavior of mice.
Japanese scientists conducted an interesting experiment on the patience of the mice for the purpose of receiving remuneration. Mammals have a look in a special region, where over a period of time they could find a treat with a certain probability of occurrence.
The researchers genetically activated the front part of the brain that is responsible for the production of serotonin. Cells, thus, started to produce a protein that responds to light that has allowed to increase the proportion of the hormone.

This was done in order to test whether the levels of serotonin while waiting for treats, that is patience. It turned out that the probability of obtaining awards in 75% of the modified mice were more tolerant than mice in the control group. When the probability of occurrence was 25% and 50%, the amount of substance did not affect the waiting time.
Scientists say that serotonin has been used previously in many experiments, but so far its impact on behavior is fully disclosed.
